Ensemble Transmission Performance Murail, Sciarrino, Others

From the Edmonton Journal:

New Music Edmonton is thankfully dedicated to keeping the cause of new music alive, although of necessity on a smaller scale. On Friday they brought to the Muttart Hall the Montreal-based Ensemble Transmission, a six-member chamber ensemble who are currently on their first tour of Western Canada. This concert, though, turned out to be not cutting edge, but a kind of throwback to a certain kind of chamber ensemble music of the avant-garde period of the 1960s and 1970s.
